The perimeter of a rectangle is to be no greater than 300 in., and the length must be 125 in. Write an inequality representing the maximum perimeter.

300>2(125)+2w


thanks

This looks good except that if the perimeter is to be no greater than 300 in, 300 in must be GREATER THAN OR EQUAL to the perimeter:

300 > 2(125) + 2w
